Message from Mayor Kleem

Families attending the Jack Frost Festival of Lights on Saturday, Dec. 5 can expect a few extra perks this year.  

If you click on the Jack Frost icon on this page, it will take you to Pick-a-Box. There, you can click on one of three prize boxes by registering to attend the Jack Frost Festival. At the festival, you can pick up your prize (those are a secret until the day of the festival) at a special booth. Only those who pre-register are eligible for the prizes.

The Light Up Berea Parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. from the Municipal Parking Lot behind City Hall. The tree-lighting ceremony and fireworks will follow at around 6:30 p.m. at the Triangle. After that, kids can meet Santa, skate on the “iceless” rink at McKelvey Park and ride the miniature Ferris wheel and merry-go-round.  There also will be free hot chocolate and cookies. 

If you have any questions, contact the special events coordinator, Megan Pochatek, at or call (440) 274-5608. 

Please join me and my family on Dec. 5 as we welcome the Christmas season to Berea.
